This Remembrance Sunday, as our thoughts turn to the sacrifices made by members of the Armed Forces, I ask your readers to spare a moment for the remarkable men and women of the Royal Air Force.
The RAF is deployed worldwide, defending our skies and supporting our troops. Seventy years ago the RAF was just as stretched, flying to defend the UK, Malta, Egypt, and the Atlantic supply lines.
The RAF Benevolent Fund was on hand then and is still here today, supporting all generations of the Royal Air Force, including those currently serving.
At this time of giving thanks I would urge anyone with a Royal Air Force background who is in need of help or support to contact our free advice line on 0800 169 2942 or via our website: www.rafbf.org.
